Goals and Objectives
   Project Goal

   The goal of this project is:

   To create a captivating interactive environment that educates kids and pre teens on history of
   music genres.

   Objectives

   To achieve this goal, the project must:

   1. Must be educational on music genres history
   2. Audience attention must be maintain
   3. Child must be able to follow along and navigate application
   4. Must me kid friendly

   Proposed project:

I intend to make an interactive nonlinear application that educates kids and pre teens from
the ages of 6 to 13 on the history of music genres. The website will educate, entertain,
while opening the door and giving the resource for a music genres web community. This
website will feature a new genre every three to four weeks helping users stay current with
new information and history. The user will be immersed in a cartoon environment in
which they will encounter things that will interact with them. The goal of this project is to
get kid interested an involved in music and not so involved in current music artists. This
project will be a fun way of introducing children to many types of music genres and the
history behind them.

This project will be made using Flash to build the interactive interface. Illustrator and
Photoshop will be used to make the graphics. The audio will be done in ACIDE so that
sample of music can be used in the application. The project will take 13 week to get the
basic draft done. I plan to make this an on going project after school it done and
hopefully get it out on the market.



                                                        2
 Rationale
  1. The user gets to play and make music as they learn information about music. It
     becomes more of a game to the user when it is actually educating the user.

  2. The user needs to be interested in music.

  3. I have a love in music and feel people are more into music artists then the music itself. I would
     love to change that.
